Having been unable to get Chappelle back, the network has pieced together the sketches he did before bolting and named them "Chappelle's Show: The Lost Episodes."
The clips in the first episode take direct aim at what was then the comedian's newfound fortune.
In the first, he's seen trying to convince a barber that he doesn't get paid much on cable. Just then, BET reports that he's getting $55 million. Suddenly, the price of his haircut goes to $11,000. Later, a guy washing his car jacks up the price, too.
"You're the richest funniest man in America," the guy tells Chappelle.
Chappelle is also hauled into an IRS office. The feds want more since he's making more.
Chappelle's bodyguard is shot there, and his last words are: "Your greed did this to me, Dave. ... You didn't have to do two more seasons. You know they're going to say it's not as good as last year."
It's a funny moment, and one that offers an interesting take on Chappelle's departure, which he told Oprah Winfrey occurred because he was stressed out and so disgusted with his work he began to feel "like a prostitute."

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only t
